(2013 Vintage) Deep red colour with hints of purple. Expressive on the nose with notes of ripe black fruits, violets, and tobacco. Long finish.
wine spectator 90, rank 90 on top 100 2010. velvety raspberry fig and boysenberry laced with dark toast pastis and roasted vanilla. drink now!
Great tasting, especially with steak. Tastes good by itself as well. Has kick to it but with very lively and fruity taste.
Intensely flavorful but too sweet. Hints of chocolate and coffee.
Good nose, a little acidic but fruity, adequate finish.
smooth, good kick, definitely a great dinner wine
agree with oaky bitterness. just dry enough
quite good for the price
full of robust flavor

Wine Spectator(2014 Vintage) This has a silky mouthfeel, with rich, plush flavors of boysenberry, dark currant and black olive that carry plenty of creamy accents. Features dark chocolate and Asian spice details on the finely textured finish.
